The Things I Still Cherish About You

(To my sweet husband that I miss so very much)

I still have all of your pictures, stashed neatly
away in a box.
I also have keepsakes from that camping trip,...
yes, I still have those rocks.

I have all of the songs that you wrote in a 
notebook, just for me.
And your buffalo collection we worked so 
hard to achieve.

All of those silly little “state magnets” are
still stuck on the refrigerator.
Your jacket that you loved so much is still
hanging on the door.

The shirt that you gave me when you had
to leave one time
Still ends up on my pillow when I’m sad
and can’t get you off of my mind.

My tears now take the place on that shirt, of the 
smell of your cologne.
God, I’m no good without you. I was never
meant to be alone.

Your cowboy hat is still in car, back in 
the rear window
And the damn radio stations won’t allow
me to let you go.

It’s like they save all of our songs, to play 
when I get in the car.
I like to think you did that just to let
me know you’re not far.

Well, Honey, it looks like I’ll never get 
used to you being gone.
So all I can hope for is the day I’ll see you again,
and hear you sing our love song.
